Mathematics

Below is the list of available course choices for Mathematics visiting students in 2017-2018, broken down by term and year of study. The numbers following each course name represent the number of lectures for each course. When completing page 3 of the application form, we recommend choosing 16 (resp. 8) lecture courses as primary (resp. secondary) course choices.  Since it is expected that the tutorials will cover more material than 16 (resp. 8) lectures, for a secondary subject, 16 lecture courses can also be chosen. This list is not definitive, but major changes are unlikely and will be updated quickly.

The detailed synopsis, as well as some course materials can be found here. During Trinity Term we may be forced by the limited number of courses lectured to offer courses that are not lectured, turning them into essentially reading courses. Under exceptional circumstances, we may also offer Part B/C (years 3/4) courses.
